Guns n’ Boys needs to be read in order. This is the second part of book one.
— Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —
The Family is always right.
The Family doesn’t forget.
The Family pays for blood in blood.
Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.
Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins.
Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.
If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself–with the most intoxicating man he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.
Whew.. Well, as much as I found wrong with the first part.. it was all fixed in the second part. Sure Seth is still a bit of a wuss considering his situation, but finally we get to see him man up for the man he loves.
Dom once again knocked my socks off. He was so sexy, supportive, conflicted at times (for all the right reasons).. Just fantastic. He’s so strong, yet emotional (once we get to know him). I loved him so much!
I know it brought tears to my eyes at times because you go through so much with these men as a couple only to have one obstacle after another thrown their way.
The one part I didn’t care for was that some things were REALLY glossed over… like the fact that Seth had his first woman lover and while I understand WHY it wasn’t talked about much, I think there should’ve been a bit more detail/feelings about that whole situation.
I SOOOO need the next installment.. Like STAT.. yesterday.. NOW!!! It ends on such a mega cliffhanger I’m chewing my nails and sweating at the same time.. hurry up and write/edit/publish!

Kat and Agnes enjoy writing various kinds of stories, from light-hearted romance to thrillers. They love creating characters that are not easy to classify as good or evil, and firmly believe that even some villains deserve their happy endings. It is easiest to find them in galleries, good restaurants and historical sites, always with a computer or notebook, because for Kat and Agnes, every day is writing day. Future plans include lots of travel and a villa on the coast of Italy or a flat in Paris where they could retire after yet another crazy venture, only to write more hot homoerotic stories.
Kat and Agnes started as popular authors of online serials written in their native language, but are now focused on reaching a wider readership by writing in English. As K.A. Merikan, they have published a number of books, which cross genres while always staying homoerotic.
